Know Your Water Lingo

Grocery stores and restaurants offer varieties of water that are difficult to keep up with. Spring, flavored, artesian, mineral, sparkling -- what do these watery terms mean? Isn't water ... water?

The Food and Drug Administration has developed definitions for each of these types of water, and more:

  • Artesian water is a certain type of well water, collected without mechanical pumping. The well must tap a confined aquifer (an underground layer of rock or sand with water) that has water standing much higher than the rock, gravel or sand.
  • Mineral water contains standard quantities of minerals that must be naturally present, not added.
  • Purified water has been processed to remove minerals and other solids. (Purified doesn't mean it is better for you than any other kind.)
  • Sparkling water is water with a "fizz," either with added carbon dioxide or naturally carbonated. (Seltzer, tonic and club soda are not sparkling water, they are considered soft drinks.)
  • Spring Water comes from an underground source and naturally flows to the surface. It must be collected at the spring or through a bored hole that taps an underground source of the spring.
